Maybe stop it now?


I kid you not. The comic is late because it's so hot I couldn't sit in the room where I keep my work computer.
Anyway, I have an app that updates me on the most important news, and the other day it informed me that a big blow-up flamingo had been spotted near Danish beaches. I think perhaps the journalists are suffering in the heat too.

When I moved from Las Vegas, USA, to Tokyo, Japan, for school, I’d often go down to a local bar to study. One night I was in there, the bartender asked me how hot it got in Vegas. It took me a minute to reply, not so much because I didn’t know the Japanese for what I wanted to say, but because I’ve never been good at converting America’s stupid Fahrenheit system to Celsius.

After a moment, I told him. “Go-ju do gurai.”

Him and another employee busted up laughing. A friend who was WAY more fluent than I translated, “He’s laughing because you messed up your Japanese numbers. You said it was fifty degrees in Las Vegas!”

I had to show him the weather site on my phone that gave the highs for that August, then the conversion for Fahrenheit to Celsius. The looks on their faces were PRICELESS!!! That bartender looked at me like I was some sort of monster or alien the rest of that night.

Wait, I drink with plastic straws … *realization*

Sorry guys, I guess I single handedly caused climate change. My bad.

Ironically Nigeria is experiencing much lower temperatures than the northern hemisphere is, and we have the Sahara desert right next door

I could go on and on about it being hot as hell in the southern US, at 38 degrees celsius/100 fahrenheit- but- I actually do understand why people in the north complain about it being what would be considered average for the south- Because, we in the south are used to it, so it doesn't effect us as much, and, since it almost never gets like that up there, it being like that in the north would basically feel like hell- Good luck my northern friends, and may you have a somewhat tolerable rest of the summer

Southern US is subtropical, northern US and most of Europe are temperate. Normal subtropical summers differ from normal temperate ones.
